Second Liebster Award

In the fall, I was nominated for my first Liebster Award.  You can see my post on it here.

Last week, I was nominated for a second Liebster Award.  Since this award is given by other bloggers who read my blog, I enjoy responding to these.

So here goes.

What is the Liebster Award? Here are the Rules!:

This award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers...the award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another.

1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. No tag backs.

               Swiss

3. What was your favorite post on your blog to wright?
               The post titled Who Am I?
4. What makes your blog stand out?
                I think it is because I write about things most people feel are not subjects to write about - death, grief, rare diseases - it isn't all happy things.
5. What zoo animal would you want to me?
              A kangaroo.  Don't ask me why, because I don't have any sort of reason.
6. What are you really good at?
             Lately - being lazy!   Seriously - I think it is researching options before making a decision on a major issue.
7. What is the best tea or coffee to drink?
             Whatever coffee is on sale!
8. Will you do something just for yourself this year, if so what will it be?

10. What historical period would you like to live in if you could go back in time?
             When life was less complicated and involved more family time.
